KIRKUS REVIEW

A new title in the Great Battles of History Series by a Professor of history at Stanford deals with the decisive moment in the Austro-Prussian war when the Prussian unlans defeated the Austrian units representing a far stronger power. The battle also (perhaps more commonly) known as Sadowa was the ""biggest encounter of its kind,"" established the triumph of the ""advanced technology of the Industrial Age,"" and had extensive political consequences.
